Rejected proposal to create more jobs
The decision of the Legislative Assembly which rejected yesterday, by only one vote, the PCA (Proposal of Constitutional Amendment) that link the granting of tax incentives for companies to maintain and expand the jobs, leave us perplexed, if it did not confirmed the unfortunate commitments of some members of our house of laws
Paraná State (Southern Brazil) is giving up taxes to generate jobs and the opposition doesn't like it. It is unacceptable, unbelievable. Is it possible that a firm comes to Paraná, receives tax benefits, keeps the money of the people and at the first bad day fires workers? I do not doubt that in the rejection of the Employment Pact, they have counted on the support of the car's producers political group...
The proposal had 32 votes in its favor and nine against it. Twelve members were ABSENT of the plenary. For its approval, it was necessary the support of three fifths of the 54 Members of Paraná's House of Laws, that is, 33 votes.
We deeply regret that in this first round, the large economic interests have prevailed over those of workers. The rejection of the PCA is the envy of those who do not recognize the generation of new 630 thousand jobs in the last six years.
Those who voted against the proposal are precisely those that are aligned to the previous government, which generated only 37 thousand jobs in eight years of administration.
Remember, the current government is adopting all necessary measures to ensure that workers are not disadvantaged by the international economic crisis.
We have the tax exemptions, the tax policy of reduction of GSMT (tax on movement of goods and services), the Good Jobs Program and regional minimum wage, among others. But it is always good to remember that we face powerful interests represented in the nine votes.
Against PCA of Employment voted members Ademar Traiano (PSDB), Douglas Fabrício (PPS), Durval Amaral (DEM), Antonio Scanavacca (PDT), Luiz Carlos Martins (PDT), Marcelo Rangel (PPS), Plautus Miro (DEM) , Reni Pereira (PSB) and Valdir Rossoni (PSDB). These Members will be responsible for the layoffs of workers from now on, is the conclusion we have by now.
ABSENT were members Antonio Anibelli (PMDB), Dr. Batista (PMN), Edson Strapasson (PMDB), Carlos Simões (PR), Élio Rusch (DEM), Fabio Camargo (PTB), Luiz Accorsi (PSDB), Luiz Eduardo Cheida ( PMDB), Mauro Moraes (PMDB), Ney Leprevost (PP), Pedro Ivo (PT). The chairman of the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Nelson Justus (DEM), will not vote.
I must remember that the Government of Paraná is adopting all necessary measures to ensure that workers are the minimum affected by international economic crisis. We have the tax exemptions, the tax policy of reduction of GSMT (tax on movement of goods and services), the Good Jobs Program and regional minimum wage, among others. But it is always good to remember that we face powerful interests represented in the nine votes.
WORKERS - The president of the New Trade Union of Workers of Paraná, Epitácio Santos, also criticized the rejection of the Employment Pact for the difference of only one vote. "Our organization keep in contact with members of the house of laws so that the proposal enters it again, he said.
